  1. 1


  2. 2

    In a medium saucepan heat butter over medium heat. Add brown sugar and granulated sugar and cook for 2 minutes until sugar is dissolved.

  3. 3

    Add diced apples, lemon juice, cinnamon, ground ginger, nutmeg and a pinch of salt. Lower heat and cook until apples are tender and sauce is reduced. Set aside to cool while you prepare the Brazilian Cheese Bread.

  4. 4

    With lightly oiled hands, knead together 2 bites into a ball, and place on an oiled cookie sheet. Press down in the middle to create a small “pie” shaped shell. Continue until desired amount of pies are formed.

  5. 5

    Place 1 teaspoon of the apple filling in each pie and top with 2 apple slices. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and place in oven.

  6. 6

    Cook for 20 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through cooking. Remove and drizzle with caramel sauce. Serve warm.

Caramel Sauce

  1. 1

    In a medium saucepan combine 1 cup sugar and 1/4 cup water and cook without stirring over medium heat until the sugar mixture becomes amber colored.

  2. 2

    In a small saucepan heat cream until warmed. Slowly add to the sugar mixture, whisking to combine and cook over low heat for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in butter and salt. Drizzle over Apple Pie Minis.
